International bat week

Fruit bat

This week we celebrate the Bat ๐Ÿฆ‡
They are amazing creatures who play an important role in our ecosystem, pollinating flowers, fruits and eating insects.
I have a resident fruit bat I’ve named Betsy who lives in the eaves outside my kitchen window.

Check out my YouTube channel and please subscribe. Thank you ๐Ÿ™

Oriental pied hornbill

Oriental pied hornbill

I was going to draw and then I got distract by some gardening that lasted all afternoon, and then I went for a long walk and tired myself out. Luckily I remembered I had this drawing of an oriental pied hornbill in oil pastels on paper that I did last year after my cousin sent me a photo of a pair of them visiting their balcony in Singapore.

My first NFT on OpenSea

I thought I’d do an experiment and learn how to mint artwork on the OpenSea NFT platform. I’m not sure how it works, but no harm learning along the way and see what happens.

My first NFT is of Bob the bunny. I chose the bunny because it’s mid autumn festival today and the bunny is a symbol of good fortune and good luck.

Mid autumn festival : legend of the rabbit and the moon

Rabbit and the moon

Today I’m taking a break from photoshop and I decided to experiment with some pastels. Still on the theme of the full moon festival. We have here the rabbit who lives on the moon. If you look up at the moon carefully tonight or the next couple ofย  nights when it’s still full moon,ย  you may catch a glimpse of the rabbit ๐Ÿฐ

I painted this quite some time ago and here he is in animation. I’m quite slow with the animation as I’m still learning and my computer is so slow but it’s been fun learning new skills. My dream is to bring all my animal characters to live!! They’ve been talking to me a lot. I owe them that. I will try.

Watch the animation here :

Dusky leaf monkey

https://youtube.com/shorts/QfNMTqLU_nA?feature=share

The dusky leaf monkey or spectacled langur is indigenous to Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar. They are gentle herbivores and spend all their time in the tree tops. The babies are golden in colour when they are born. I’ve been trying to spot these golden babies for many years but I have never seen one this colour. They turn grey, black once they are 6 months old.
I haven’t given up hope. I am always on the look out for the golden babies. This species is on the endangered list so time of the essence but I do hope that they will be saved.

I’m working on a series of Star Wars pet paintings. This is a drawing in my sketchbook to see how it will look like. My sketchbook is a tool I use for many things. It holds all my memories, emotions and also ideas for projects, just as a journal does.
